Starting a Young Adult Novel [Jaqueline Kolosov]

We will begin our day by looking at the openings of three to four diverse YA novels, among them John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, Nina LaCour’s Hold Still, and/or Libba Bray’s A Great and Terrible Beauty. We’ll weave craft issues into the discussion, concentrating on character development and voice. You will leave with a number of prompts for getting started.
